Storage solutions
With a little one in the house you'll need a few nifty storage solutions.

Bathroom basics

  • Nowhere to go with dirty laundry and wet towels?
  • Create a corner in a room or bathroom and equip it with a coat hanger where hooded towels and washcloths can dry.
  • ou can even hang your nappy bag here.
  • Have different sized baskets available so that you can immediately separate dirty towels from bedding and babygros to make doing the washing easy as pie.

Living with space to breathe

  • For such little people, babies and toddlers sure do have a lot of stuff.
  • Keep the clutter under control by storing it in pretty boxes or functional trays.
  • Look at ordinary household items in a different light- a glass jar is a perfect spot for socks or Lego
  • While see-through storage boxes make a great storage item for all those miniature socks.

Create the perfect space

  • Your toddler's clothing is so tiny it can easily be dwarfed in a large closet.
  • It will be twice as difficult to keep those vests stacked neatly or babygros in a neat order.
  • Create your own makeshift cupboard with boxes and trolleys that are more appropriate for your toddler's or baby's clothing.
  • For those with an existing cupboard in the nursery, shelving and storage boxes that will divide the space into smaller areas is a must.

 Neat nursery

  • The changing table is a cardinal part of any nursery.
  • Use storage items to keep it neat and tidy without any items being within reach of your baby's grabbing hands.
  • Use glass containers wisely by hanging them from a floating shelf.


Use double-sided tape or Prestik to secure any containers that could be easily knocked off by an active baby or anything that can topple over when you are in a hurry.
